The cast and crew of “Jurassic Park Dominion” were truly like family.
On SiriusXM’s “The Jess Cagle Show” this week, Jeff Goldblum, Bryce Dallas Howard, DeWanda Wise, BD Wong and director Colin Trevorrow sat down to talk about making the latest film in the iconic franchise.
Among the many revelations during the chat is that Bryce Dallas Howard practiced his barbering skills on the cast crew and family.
“She’s a great hairdresser. She used to cut everyone’s hair on holidays,” remarks Goldblum.
“Not great,” Howard hesitates. “I try, I’m more confident than talented and it’s dangerous.”
Wong chimes in to say, “You’re awfully humble about it now.”
“It’s strange. It’s not for nothing, but she said to me, ‘I’m amazing,'” comments Wise.

Recalling how haircuts have gone down during the pandemic, Howard says, “I was like, ‘Sit down everybody. Because frankly what’s great is that for us to start filming again, we all had to agree to live together at the hotel. And when I say us, it’s not just the actors, it’s our families. These are people who work with us as assistants, substitutes and doubles because we were all together and needed to be a bubble together. And so people who weren’t actors and were going to get a haircut for five months literally didn’t have a haircut. So these are the people whose hair I cut.
Looking at Wise, the actress adds, “They’re my victims. Your stepmom, I think I cut her, her bangs.
the last by whom I would like to be killed.
The director says, “I don’t want people spitting on me. I do not like it at all. I’ll just be eaten in one bite. Thanks.”
“He always knows who deserves it,” Wong jokes.
Laughing, Trevorrow said, “He’s a dinosaur of justice.”

Finally, the cast talks about the reference in “Dominion” to Goldblum’s iconic shirtless scene in the original “Jurassic Park.”
“It was amazing,” Howard says of the scene.
“I was trying to remember,” Goldblum says. “I tried to answer the question that I say, ‘I don’t remember that was definitely not the script.’ I didn’t tell Steven [Spielberg], ‘Go on. Let’s do one where I show a little more.
“Must have been the heat, right?” It had to be like ‘It’s burning here,’” Wise wonders.
“Or he said, ‘Come on Jeff. Come on, we need to show some skin. … I said, ‘We should talk to the people in the room.’ [Laura Dern] was here. And she said, ‘Oh no, no.’ I think you see it, and I don’t think you see it a lot, but I think I also got hurt right here, my chest.
He continues: “And there were bandages, bandages and there was blood. And I think we were part of it.
“It’s a problem that no one remembers the injury,” Trevorrow points out.
“One of the biggest compliments,” jokes Cagle.
“You’d think you’d be able to see it,” Wong says.
“I don’t think it was there,” Wise retorts. “I think they just decided they didn’t want to spend that much more.
“I completely forgot about it. It was just Laura reminding me yesterday that maybe that’s what happened,” Goldblum admits.
